Several small slabs avalanching on the N face of Christmas gully (I cross-cutted a small slab in the N side of the gully) and the W face of Strachan, even in the forest along the Howe sound crest trail. Debris looked quite recent around 6-7pm. Contidions were more stable in the NE face of Hollyburn peak, however it was crusty in most aspects, less in N faces. Not as crusty as Monday night at 7-8pm, due to differences in temperature.

Snow conditions were: Crusty, Heavy, Wind affected. Weather conditions were: Cloudy, Foggy. We rode: Convex slopes, Mellow slopes, Open trees, Steep slopes. Riding quality was ok.

Avalache Conditions: Slab avalanches today or yesterday.
